Fr. Pavone: VP Biden misses the point on abortion

Priests for Life-Staten Island, NY


PHILADELPHIA -- In an interview with the Jesuit publication America, Vice President Biden stated, “Abortion is always wrong … But I’m not prepared to impose doctrine that I’m prepared to accept on the rest of [the country]…I’m prepared to accept that at the moment of conception there’s human life and being, but I’m not prepared to say that to other God-fearing [and] non-God-fearing people that have a different view.”

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement today about these remarks:

"While the vice president acknowledges that abortion is always wrong, apparently he misunderstands the reason. Abortion is wrong for the same reason stealing is wrong or terrorist acts are wrong: These actions violate people's rights. Are we to say that our faith opposes terrorism, but that we will allow it for people of other faiths? The goal of the pro-life movement and pro-life churches is not to impose beliefs on anyone, but rather to protect people from beliefs that others would invoke to kill them."


Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit
